How INTPs Can Overcome Procrastination (For Good!)

The infamous ditzy Christmas-tree brain strikes yet again. There’s something important you should be doing. That finals paper. The job application. The long conversation. The really-critical-and-time-sensitive-obligation. The big thing you’ve been putting off for quite some time now. You know very well what it is. 

Procrastination is a phenomenon that arrives in all shapes and sizes—a lifestyle Perceivers live and breathe. Dr. Ferrari, a professor of psychology at DePaul University, identifies three primary types of procrastination:

The Healing Power of Nature for the Introverted Mind

Throughout the centuries, humans have found solace in the outdoors. Nature has inspired the works of great artists and writers, such as Keats, Millais, and Turner. These artists saw in nature what we still see today—a safe haven and an opportunity to escape the chaos of the city.

But what is it about nature that makes us feel good—whether we’re Introverts or Extraverts?

7 Ways To Care For The (Super Baffling) INTP

INTPs are an interesting bunch. We can be affectionate and wild one second, then completely disappear for the next several thousands. You may be a friend or family member to a particular INTP in your life. You might even be that very INTP, and are looking out to see how these suggestions rack up. (In that case, why hello there.) 

NTPs and Science Careers: What It’s Like to be an NTP in a sea of NTJs

Almost every personality typing website out there likes to list science-related careers as a good fit for ENTPs and INTPs.

The Power of Self-Care for Introverts

What superpower would you choose to help manage your health?  I imagine some people might choose the power to instantly gain or lose weight or to turn their favorite junk food into healthy food. Or maybe you would like to stop time to get some extra sleep. For most Introverts, having time to themselves to process their thoughts and enjoy their inner world is not only a powerful way to re-energize, but it is essential in managing their overall health.

INFP vs. INTP: How to Tell Them Apart

INTJ vs. INTP: How To Tell Them Apart

Both commonly dubbed as ‘emotionless robots’ or ‘logical masterminds’ with no clue on how to navigate the social sphere or figure out romantic encounters, the INTJ and INTP are among one of the most difficult pairs (and brains) to pick apart. Since they’re both Intuitive Thinkers (NT), it’s quite common to mistype as the other.

Confidence for Introverts (Not Another Patronizing and Simplistic Guide)

Confidence is normally described as a belief in yourself and your abilities. I don't like this definition because it feels too static.
